Book Description

Culturally Adapting Psychotherapy for Asian Heritage Populations: An Evidence-Based Approach provides insights on how research on psychotherapy, an area that is most often done on non-ethnic minority populations, can be related to minority clients.

The book's author, Dr. Hwang, developed the first evidence based culturally adapted treatment for Asian populations which is comprehensively discussed in this book, including treatments for depression that are complemented with concrete examples throughout the book. In addition, the book further discusses how culturally adaptive techniques can be applied for treatment of other disorders in other ethnic populations.
